Arsenal Star Set To Leave, Despite The Club Not Buying New Striker

Arsenal will be set to have a difficult second half of the season if they fail to reinforce in attack and midfield.


Red cards given to Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka, have left Arsenal with a lack of options in midfield. Arteta's beef with former Arsenal captain Pierre Emerick Aubameyang continues to complicate matters however.


Despite taking away Aubameyang's captaincy, Arteta has made little effort to make up with his ex-captain who is still a good player.


Aubameyang's country Gabon, has already been dumped out of AFCON, hence Aubameyang will soon be back at Arsenal, whereby he is unwanted and doesn't play.


Hence, Spanish club Barcelona who have recently acquired the services of speedster Adama Traore, has been linked with the striker.


Before, the Gabon striker signed a new contract with Arsenal, Barcelona were still interested in him. Currently, Barca want to take the striker on loan for six months, while taking care of his salary.


If Arteta fails to mend fences with the striker, he might soon be forced to give him away to Barca with leaving Arsenal short of options in attack.
